Daily Deviation

Given 2013-07-10
Portrait of a Leatherworker by *Indiangal In Minecraft, in order to get leather, you must kill cattle (and, yes, horses as of the update). It is no different here. Please respect the photographer and this deviation as a work of photojournalism and a striking, if controversial, view of a part of our world. ( Featured by 1pen )

Hello ^1pen

I've been away from dA for a while, and when I logged onto the site again today, I saw an amazing interest in one of my favorite pics, which is not necessarily everybody's cup of tea!! 

I wondered why this sudden interest until i came across a message congratulating me on the DD.  Wow, I'm gobsmacked.  This is awesome, but it is also the least expected.  Thank you ^1pen for respecting and appreciating my work.  And I'm particularly thankful to you for helping to start the dialogue that's going on below.

Thank you to everybody for their comments - they are much appreciated.

By the way, I'm thrilled to bits to get my second DD!!

I know how this is. We used to do it ourselves.
We drove around to the cockies farms and collected all the dead cows and calves, took them home and skined them.
We how ever, didnt just leave the bodies there in the middle of the paddock, thats a little disrespectful of these people.
We used the meat for the dogs, and the bodies were dumped for the pigs to eat.

not everyday I see a photo like this on DA! Thank you for documenting this persons life, people in first-world countries hardly see this anymore, but this man has done it perhaps all his life.
congrats on the DD!!~

keep it up :D

That is a great photo. Very interesting capture and it tells a powerful story. It's the way life goes, people do what needs to be done.

I don't get why people are offended by this.It's apart of life,animals eat other animals all the time,and we have been doing it since the being of time.
